holiday treat


Look how pretty something as simple as a custom label on a chocolate bar can be when displayed en masse. Personalize each bar with someone’s name, or a holiday greeting, and stuff a stocking for a sweet surprise! Love this idea from Amy Atlas Events!

I, and my entire house, are glittered top to bottom, but I did manage to finish making glitter christmas ornaments for the handmade ornament exchange over the weekend!

client (and store) we love: orange & pear



all gifts shown available at orangeandpear.com


When Jennifer came to me asking for help with a logo for her new business I was intrigued. She promised a “fresh perspective on gift giving.” Interesting, but possible?. She said her favorite colors are green and orange. Yes, yes. My favorite, too. Go on. Please add shades of grey, she said. No more brown … happy dance. She said it would be the END of boring hostess gifts. Hmmm. Really? She was so sincere, so lovely, so darn NICE. So I spent hours sketching and playing with type, tweaking and improving, until I designed a fun, sweet, colorful logo for her. I had a blast working on this logo with her … all the while I had yet to see nary a peek at her website, which was still in the works.

But guess what? She delivered!!! Not a one ordinary gift to be found on her site– everything is carefully curated. Perfectly wonderful. It’s the end of boring hostess gifts for real! Yay! Congratulations, Jennifer, on the successful launch of your shop: Orange and Pear.

handmade holiday ornaments


Since I signed up for a handmade holiday ornament exchange a few weeks ago I have been trying to decide what to make. I’m not quite sure what I’ll make yet, but I’m fairly certain it will involve glitter! Last year I made a 3-d paper snowflake, and I may do that again. Or perhaps a paper cone filled with candy. I’d love to make some felt animal ornaments, but I think that would take too long and I need to make a bunch. Do you have any other ideas?
